    Balance is the word. Dynamic balance. Good balance will contribute to better timing and more power.

    Went to the PGA pro am in La Quinta couple weeks ago. You could tell who was the pro and who was the amtuer from 300 yards. To play as an amtuer, I believe the player had to be a 10 handicap or better. So not complete hacks. But the balance and the efficiency of the pros swing was easily discerned.

    So your saying the negative move is intertwined with the positive move? I agree. You need to go back ( get back, preset, get into, weight the back heel ) to get positive. imo.
    Thanks in advance.

    It truly is about balance. Balance within your movements. Balance breeds Consistency. Consistency breeds confidence. Confidence breeds ... everything.
    Thanks in advance.

    You might appreciate Moe Norman's teachings. He was an advocate of ... nothing at the sake of balance.

    Is balance more to you then just the COG staying in the center of Glaus's swing? Or is it efficiency within the entire swing?

    The golf swing is based on centripetal force. The trunk of the body is the center of the force. Control the center to control the motion.

    Yes that's what I'm saying. Although hitters are different, have different styles to get to the coiled position. Some have more FBC and some do not show much FBC or they coil early on in the sequence and don't coil throughout the entire stride.
